Naples, FL (July 14, 2015) — Minto Communities announces the grand opening of a new ultra-luxurious, single-family home model at The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples — the Tamarind Grande. The dramatic, two-story model includes 5,892 square feet with 4,037 square feet under air.
The Tamarind Grande’s many striking features include two guest casitas that open directly onto the 1,100-square-foot interior courtyard with pool, spa and fountain feature. An expansive 700- square-foot lanai with unobstructed water views includes an outdoor kitchen and outdoor living room with dramatic 12-foot-high wood ceiling. The second floor guest casita has its own private balcony that connects to a recreation room with large bar area and home office.
Including the two guest casita bedrooms and baths, the Tamarind Grande has four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths. The stunning first-floor master suite offers a secluded poolside sanctuary and includes two large walk-in closets and elegant master bath with double vanities. A two-car and a one-car garage accommodate vehicles as well as provide additional storage — a popular feature in Florida homes.
The Tamarind Grande’s fresh decor creatively combines soothing grey tones, rich teals and water blues to capture the essence of relaxed Florida living. An impressive entry foyer and wide gallery with limestone flooring lead to a study, formal dining room and spacious great room.
With its high ceilings, expansive layout and multiple outdoor living spaces, the Tamarind Grande blends indoor and outdoor living, and offers inviting spaces to provide relaxing private retreats and comfortably accommodate houseguests.
The gourmet kitchen with expansive island opens to the great room with dramatic 12-to-14-foot double tray ceilings. Three sets of pocketed sliding glass doors open fully to the courtyard, pool, spa and lanai to create a seamless flow between inside and outside living spaces. The Tamarind Grande is priced from $1,044,900.
Minto has received many national, regional and Southwest Florida industry awards for The Isles of Collier Preserve, including home design, community design and green building practices. “Minto is very pleased to present the Tamarind Grande as a larger luxury single-family home choice in this world class community,” notes Minto Communities Senior Vice President William Bullock. “We are providing a range of home choices that address the lifestyle needs and interests presented by our prospective buyers and residents,” he adds.

The Isles of Collier Preserve is located just four miles east of downtown Naples on U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail East. This uniquely located community is bordered on the south by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the north by Naples Botanical Garden, and the west by Dollar Bay. More than half of The Isles of Collier Preserve’s 2,400 acres is dedicated to preserves and natural habitat connected by a network of recreational trails, bike paths and waterways for kayaking.
Minto developed The Isles of Collier Preserve using its own funding sources, electing not to utilize Community Development District (CDD) funds, and saving homeowners at The Isles of Collier Preserve thousands of dollars in annual assessments.
